Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reacted to his first loss in a UEFA Champions League final.
Guardiola reached his third Champions League final but was undone by fellow Premier League outfit Chelsea in Portugal on Saturday evening.
The Spanish tactician came under a lot of criticism for leaving out both defensive midfielders Rodri and Fernandinho in the defeat, but he felt it was the right decision.
"I did what I thought was the best decision [on his team selection]," Guardiola said to BT Sport.
"[Kevin de Bruyne] got injured but that happens in this competition and in these games. We needed everyone.
"The ambition now is to rest but then prepare for the next season. It was the first time we were at this stage. Hopefully we will be here again in the future.
"It has been an exceptional season for us. It was a tight game. We had chances. We were brilliant in the second half, we were brave and we could not convert the chances as they were so strong. The players were exceptional. We come back maybe one day again!"
